It’s almost that time of year again for Regis University to show off our beautiful campus, this time, to Skinner Middle School students! “March 2 College Day” is a 15-year old tradition here at Regis, facilitated by the National Society of Collegiate Scholars. The goal of this day is to encourage young students to continue their educational career and attend college in the future. They will be given the full college experience by touring the dorms, classrooms, having lunch in the cafeteria, and much more!
On Tuesday April 17, Regis' chapter of NSCS will be hosting about 200 8th grade students! Regis students and faculty are all invited to come out and help make this a special day for the kids. The value of this day does not go unseen. Currently, there are two former Skinner Middle School students at Regis who rave about “March 2 College Day” and say they applied to Regis because of this experience. Stories such as these are what make this whole day so worth it and gratifying!
In order to make this day as special as possible for these kids, they need as many volunteers as possible! If you are interested in volunteering, for class or club credit please contact Ann Giesenhagen (firstname.lastname@example.org.) You can volunteer for all day or part of the day, NSCS is happy to work with your schedules so you can come out and make a difference for so many kids! The value of “March 2 College” does not only benefit middle school students, it also leaves a lasting impact on the hearts of the undergrad students as well! Please consider volunteering and come out and make a lasting impact!
